Beautiful Church With A Grail

The grail chapel was very gorgeous and well lit. They just don't let you get very close.If only Indiana Jones had known about this church, he could have saved a lot of time.

One has to suspend disbelief to truly enjoy this relic in the Valencia Cathedral. Whether it is authentic or not is subject to much debate, but they believe they have the genuine article here. I actually attended Mass in this chapel, so did not have to pay the entrance fee, which is nominal nonetheless. The chapel is small and quite... More

It really is just another church but the Holy Grail does give you a reason to visit. The area is interesting.

If you believe that this is the actual holy grail...then you will be blown away. I have read and have some serious questions in that regard. I loved my visit, it's a little crowded and the charge is 5 euro to enter the cathedral... Money well spent!

The Chapel of the Holy Grail is a side chapel of the Valencia Cathedral which houses the holy chalice known as the Holy Grail. The chapel is small, dimly lit, viewing of the holy chalice is from a distance, it is well protected behind glass.

This is one of the two preserved vessels identified as the Holy Chalice, which Jesus used at the Last Supper to serve the wine (the other one is in Genoa). According to archaeologists it was produced somewhere between 4th century BC and the 1st century AD in Palestine. Now it has its own Chapel in the Valencia Cathedral.

if you believe the folklore than this is the place, difficult to see as such a small object hidden at the back of the chapel and when a tour group arrives you'll be lucky to see it but it's worth taking a look whilst in the cathedral

church was amazing and the audio guide is a must to hear all about the church, museum was closed but overall there was loads to see for the entry fee of 5 euro, well worth a visit

It is 5€ to enter the Church but that includes an audio tour which I recommend. The church is so beautiful & grand, there are a lot of beautiful things to see. The room that the Holy Grail is in is quite large, but the grail itself is in a glass box upon an altar. You can still get a... More

We did the audio tour, well worth the €5. A breathtaking cathedral, beautifully maintained. I was quite surprised that we were permitted to take photographs. The Chapel of the Holy Grail itself is a gem. Unfortunately we were mobbed by a rather large tour group so couldn't get close enough to take any decent pictures. Will definitely go back!
